CityBridge Education’s vision is for the nation’s capital to be the first city-level proof point for an excellent, equitable education system. A Washington, DC-based nonprofit, we incubate the people, ideas, and conversations needed for equity-centered innovation in DC’s public schools. We do this by identifying talented leaders and school designers who can solve the educational needs and challenges of DC families, deploying particular effort to recruiting leaders of color. We then incubate and invest in the best of their ideas and, together, bring to market the next generation of transformational public schools and education ventures.
The Director, Stakeholder Engagement is part of the cross-functional Network Engagement team, which focuses on meaningfully and strategically engaging, growing, and cultivating relationships with our full external network, as well as development and communications efforts at CityBridge. We are currently looking for a leader who can execute a new stakeholder engagement strategy aimed at supporting the projects and entrepreneurs incubated by CityBridge and also engaging our network in ways that ultimately provide feedback on and inform our work. Specifically, the Director will be responsible for designing and executing convenings that spotlight issues relevant to the work of the entrepreneurs and projects in our portfolio, as well as educational equity, broadly. The Director will also develop and execute strategies to cultivate authentic stakeholder relationships and build systems for external feedback loops, such that CityBridge effectively seeks and internalizes input from our network.
This is a DC-based position and will require living in the Metropolitan DC area by Fall 2021. Preferred start date is by early September, and we expect the Director to commit to at least two years with CityBridge.
